Please note that the automatic server discovery feature requires at least Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and is not supported by all devices. It is disabled by default on devices that are not running at least Android 4.4 due to an operating system bug that can trigger reboots on some devices.

This app functions very well. There are just not enough functions. From the current playlist, one can neither go directly to the currently playing artist or the current album. My biggest gripe is rather about the size of the album cover. It might as well be an icon. Just move it to the left of the scrolling menu. Altogether too much room is spent on the current playlist. Plenty of room for the cover as well as the playlist. Also, the app not rotate to portrait mode! Not good. Only worth 3.5 ⭐⭐⭐.

Nice app that works. It is annoying that there is no way to jump from folder list to cureently playing view (to adjust volume for example) and to come back to the previously drilled down folder. One has to come out of the folder list entirely and only then can access the volume and track controls. On iPad this app works as it should, however. Please add this improvement to the android app and I'll gladly change the rating to 5 stars. Thank you in advance!.
